Should have stuck with LG
from Curtis, Michigan
Comments about Whirlpool 4.8 Cu. Ft. Top Loading Washer - White:
We moved 3 months ago and purchased all new appliances and I just had to have the pretty gray Whirlpool set----big mistake. There is only 2 of us, so I know it is not getting over loaded. I have white detergent stains on my dark clothes and half of the time all it does is go in a circle, when it does agitate it is such a weak agitation that the top clothes never get pulled under. As far as washing your bedding, forget it. Load just keeps going off balance. I sure wish I would have bought LG again and if I could afford to just go get one, I would and just take the Cabrio to the recycle plant. And it is not as if this was a cheap washer. Very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Worst washer I've ever owned
from Cumming GA
I bought this washer thinking that I would like the top loader version of HE instead of front loader versions because of long wash times. Still has the long wash times and my clothes are never clean. Any mildew on towels and it will not come out. I've changed detergents; used less or more; all to no avail. Finally put them in sink and soaked for over an hour and then rinsed and dried -- now they do not smell. If I wanted to wash by hand I would have bought a wash board. Also have issues with residue on dark items--does not change if I only use minimal soap. Needless to say I HATE THIS WASHER and would never recommend it. Bulky items also cause it to get off balance since they end up on top of the "agitator". Trying to get my money back.
DOES NOT CLEAN
from Findlay Ohio and Fort Myers fl.
We live in Findlay Ohio home of Whirlpool washer plant. We have never bought any appliance except for Whirlpoolfor our Findlay and Florida homes. In fact we live in the house of the first plant manager.However, this washer is a big mistake. I read the reviews and don't know what washer they are using.Just two of us so light loads. Some items don't even get wet, not to mention clean. Spinning does not clean. Use soak cycle still not clean. Will replace in January. May not be a Whirlpool product for the first time in 40 years.

Whirlpool Cabriolet Platinum 4.8 cu ft
from Springdale, AR
This had by far surpassed any expectations that I had for this washing machine. The settings are perfect for my every day needs. I love that it has a towel setting and a sheet setting where it will use extra hot water to clean these items thoroughly. Over all I would highly recommend this product to any of my friends or family members looking to upgrade.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Frustrated in LA
from Los Angeles, CA
Purchased machine in July 2014. Issues we are having:•whites don't come clean.•towels don't come clean, smell "moldy" or doesn't get all the "bodywash" soap out the wash cloths.•sheer curtains didn't come clean either.•darks when removed from the washer have spots on them, a rewash is needed.I read the manual before 1 load was even done. We use HE soap & softener, and loads are not large or unbalanced. Also Affresh tabs are used monthly.I wrote to whirlpool about my issues and included the above paragraph, stating also its just me and my wife. So loads are never large. Their response was to check what I had already listed. Using HE soap, no oversized loads, & the Affresh tabs. Email also read to schedule service if this doesn't solve the issue. LOL, sorry I'm not spending anymore $$$ on this machine, I shouldn't have to for what we paid for it. I'm done with whirlpool....obviously they don't care
from San Antonio, TX
Less than 10 months after purchasing this washer, it began giving a Sd error on the rinse and spin cycle. In the last 4 months Whirlpool has sent 3 different repair companies to my house to repair it (1st company never showed nor called), and after taking 10 days off work and 2 companies telling Whirlpool it is not repairable I am FINALLY getting a replacement! But no thanks, I'd rather have my money back and NEVER choose Whirlpool again. Whirlpool has been horrible to me during this period by not returning phone calls and not providing any compensation for my time off work or the inability to use that cycle. They treated me like it was no big deal to take that many days off work as well as they lied to me twice saying none of the repair technicians wrote in their notes that the machine was not repairable! Complaint filed with the Better Business Bureau, but again Whirlpool acted innocent and denied the claim. I will NEVER do business again with Whirlpool...EVER!!!
So far so good
from Nevada, IA
I was hesistant at first with buying an HE washer, but I have been very pleased so far. I recommend reading the the pamphlet so that you understand the specifics of each cycle, but it does a great job cleaning (it has even removed paint from my husband's work shirts). The washer can also fit a lot of clothes/sheets, and it has reduced the number of loads I do weekly. Lastly, the spin cycle is very good at removing water from the clothes and cuts the time to dry clothes in half.The only downfalls is the long wash times (can take up to 90 minutes if you add a soak and extra rinse cycle), and the bottom scrubbing plate is already knicked up (likely from jeans, but there is not any rusting), and I wish the detergent tray was easy to remove so that I could give it a good cleaning/rinsing. Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I do recommend purchasing the affresh tablets to "clean" the washer every three months or so to reduce any mildew smells that are associated with HE washers, and we always leave the lid up when it's not in use.
my wife loves all the great things this washer dose.
you can,t hear it run. great ............. whirlpool keep your great work.
do not puchase
from palo alto
I bought this washer a month ago and all I would like to do is tie the machine to the back of my car and drag it down the street. The machine does not get the clothes clean and for a million cycle options the clothes smell dirty after washing for 72 minutes. The odor isn't from wearing the clothes either. The odor if from the washer machine. Do not purchase this washer, if you do expect for your clothes to come out the same way to put them in or worse.
